Fishing Report, June 17th, 2022
The Knee Deep Club will be holding its Stew Lant Bass Challenge on Sunday June 26. There will be cash prizes for the 3 heaviest largemouth or smallmouth bass. Rod and reel combos donated by Ramsey Outdoor will be given to the top 6 qualifiers.
Several nice Channel Cats were caught this week. Chris Guarini was in recently with a channel cat weighing 10 lb. 11 oz. caught on a swimbait. Jim Welsh caught his Channel on herring in the 7 lb. range. Another in the 9-10 pound range was caught by Kevin, a guide for Lake Hopatcong Guide Service. We are also seeing some Hybrid Striped Bass in the 6-7 pound range, some nice pickerel with a 3 lb. 12 oz. weighed in by Jim Welsh, along with some nice crappies. The night bite is still on with Hybrids & walleyes taking Bomber long A’s, zara spooks and knuckleheads.
Have a great week. Laurie Murphy, owner, Dows Boat Rentals
